Lark Palma and US history teacher Meredith Goddard invite anyone who is interested to read and discuss acclaimed journalist Emily Matchar’s book Homeward Bound: Why Women are Embracing the New Domesticity.
"We look forward to a lively, inter-generational, multigendered, feminist discussion on women's changing roles at home and in the workplace," said Lark.
"The brilliance of Emily Matchar's new book is that it exhaustively describes what disillusioned workers are opting into: a slower, more sustainable, and more self-sufficient lifestyle that's focused on the home. Matchar synthesizes dozens of trend stories . . . into a single, compelling narrative about the resurgence of domesticity. . . . Refreshing" –The New Republic
The book is available for $20 in the Catlin Gabel bookstore (lower level of the Barn). Pick it up for a good winter break read.

Surgery Day is an annual 6th grade event that exposes the kids to the science and technology of surgery. There are hands-on stations where kids learn to suture, do rigid fixation of facial fractures, and try out intraoperative brain navigation, to name a few.
A hero, a dragon, girls acting dippy, and boys in tutus. This decidedly 8th grade show is a perennial favorite that has been performed to the delight (and horror) of Catlin Gabel audiences since the 1940s. Borrowing from the same basic plot (we use the term loosely), each class reflects its own personality in St. George and the Dragon. As always: cancellation threatened.
